I was diagnosed with kidney cancer and had to undergo surgery to remove a portion of my kidney.  Due to a prior medical condition I was very short on sick time.  I was contacted by the Thin Blue Line of Michigan they were extremely helpful and supportive.  We did a file review over the phone and when they hung up I felt that I truly had somebody in my corner.

After my contact with the organization I definitely felt that the Thin Blue Line of Michigan could help me.  I came away from that phone call much relieved.  I received financial assistance as well as emotional assistance.  My co-workers took it upon themselves to work for me so that I would continue to receive at least a partial paycheck.  There was a time during my sick leave though where my co-workers could not completely cover my shifts.  The Thin Blue Line was able to provide me with financial assistance so that I continued to receive full pay during those weeks where my hours were short.

No matter how well insured an officer thinks he is, in a time of need, you need some place to turn to get answers.  The insurance companies won’t bend over backward for somebody and fight for everything they are entitled to like the Thin Blue Line of Michigan will.  It is nice to know that there is somebody out there who understands Workman’s Compensation and insurances and who will fight for law enforcement and fire personnel.
